Let's Plan Your Luxury Safari to Kenya

A Luxury Safari in Kenya is truly a special experience. It is one of the most established destinations for a safari – in fact, travelers have been visiting Kenya for a safari in the continent for several decades. There are over 54 national parks and reserves in Kenya.

Because of its diversity, access and experiences offered, Kenya has always been a favourite for safari enthusiasts. With vast savannahs and dramatic mountains, it is obvious why the animators of Disney’s Lion King traveled to Kenya’s Great Rift Valley and Masai Mara National Park to get inspiration for the film’s landscape.

Located in the south, the most established park in Kenya is the Masai Mara. Game viewing here is like no other. Sightings of lion prides, elephant herds, leopard cubs and the wildebeest migration (between August and November) are just examples of what to expect to see on a morning game drive.

A Kenya safari experience is particularly attractive because of the activities it offers. The Laikipa Plateau in central Kenya offers camel and horse riding, quad biking and tubing on the Ewaso Nyiro River. In the Lewa Conservancy, travelers can visit rhino sanctuaries, dog-tracking units, and other wildlife conservation programmes.

The capital Nairobi, is a hustling city which is usually the starting point, or end destination of a luxury Kenya tour. Although the city is predominantly a business hub, there are interesting visits to be made; For example, adopt a baby elephant at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, or share a breakfast with giraffes at the famous Giraffe Hotel.

The Kenyan coast is also worth combining with your safari. An hour south of Mombasa lies Diani – arguably the country’s most beautiful beach. The coastline is formed of sparkling white sands, hugged by lush forests. For those looking for a more active stay, snorkeling, diving, and paddle boarding can be arranged. On the other hand, for those looking to sit back and enjoy the paradise coastline, do so with fresh seafood, delicious cocktails and wonderful service.

Your Private & Bespoke Kenya Safari & Tours

The wildlife in Kenya is second-to-none. The destination that is always at the forefront of the safari in Kenya is the Masai Mara National Reserve located in the south, and rightly so. The Masai Mara is one of the densest wildlife destinations in all of Africa, home to hundreds of lion prides, cheetahs, leopards, elephants, giraffe, hippo and crocodile, among many others. In particular, the elephant population has been increasing every year, and statistics show that the population has doubled from 16,000 in 1990, to now over 35,000 today.

On top of the incredible resident wildlife in the Masai Mara, during the months of July to October, you can see the wildebeest migration herds in Masai Mara. The herds cross the Mara River from the Serengeti in Tanzania into the Masai Mara in Kenya around July/August to spend a couple of months enjoying the fresh pasture in Kenya. They then head back into Tanzania, crossing the river again around October. The migration movements vary each year depending on the rain patterns but, if you want to see the herds in the Mara, the August to September period is the most reliable. The staff at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp are waiting to welcome you!

Although the Mara is truly special, there are many other destinations in Kenya that offer fantastic safari experiences. These include Amboseli National Park (famous for its iconic backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro), Samburu National Reserve, Tsavo East, the Laikipia Plateau and Lewa. All of our itineraries are tailormade so we can combine multiple parks and destinations across the country for the ultimate Kenya safari.

Kenya Safari & Tours Q&A

Gemma NEW Q&A

Gemma our Safari Specialist

How much is a luxury safari in Kenya?

The answer to this question depends on many factors: which type of year you travel, which destinations you visit, and which camps and lodges you stay in. Generally speaking, a luxury Kenya safari can be anywhere from £3-4,000 per person. That said, there are some luxury tented camps and lodges which can charge anywhere from $1,000 per person per night, so it really does fluctuate based on the accommodation and itinerary you go with. If you have a budget in mind, it’s worth speaking about it to us on the phone so that we can recommend particular properties and curate your itinerary to come within your budget.

How long should I go on a Kenya safari for?

The answer to this is subjective but, as a guideline, I would recommend a safari between 3-6 nights is a sufficient amount of time. I would always recommend a minimum of 3 nights on safari in one lodge or camp. This gives you enough time to experience fantastic wildlife sightings, but also get to know the staff, managers and your safari guide who will ultimately become a friend. If you have traveled on safari before, you will know what a safari is like so we would recommend longer periods of time.

Which Kenya safari is best for me?

With over 50 national parks in Kenya, there is plenty of choice for your Kenya safari. A great place to start would be to decide what sort of safari experience you are looking for. For example, do you want to see a particular animal or sighting, like the great migration? Or are you looking for a safari experience where you can try lots of activities, such as walking safaris, night game drives and hot air balloon safaris? Once you have narrowed it down to the type of safari experience you are after, we can advise which time of year to go, which parks to head to and which camps to stay in.

What is a typical day on safari like?

A safari is unlike any other holiday as you are usually up every morning around 5.30am. Although this sounds quite intense, your wake up call is very inviting – as a hot cup of tea or coffee is brought to you in your safari tent and served to you in bed. You will head out on your morning game drive around 6.30am, as the sun is rising. The reason for the early morning starts is that the wildlife is at its most active, so you get the best interactions and sightings. You will return to camp for the middle of the day, to enjoy lunch, a swim or a siesta, before heading out on an afternoon game drive around 4pm. On average, a luxury Kenya safari will include around 7-8 hours on safari.
